Earlier today, Lenovo announced the S5000 Android tablet, advertising it as "one of the slimmest tablets in the market." Next to the Vibe X smartphone and the long list of ultrabooks shown off at IFA 2013 by Lenovo, the Lenovo S5000 is an excellent addition to the company's portfolio of new products. 

The Lenovo S5000 is lighter and thinner than both the Nexus 7 and ASUS' MeMo Pad HD 7, although these two have more powerful hardware under the hood. These are the main features of the S5000:

  • Processor: quad-core 1.2 GHz MediaTek MTK 8389
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB DDR2 RAM; 16 GB ROM
  • Display: 7-inch touch screen with 1,280X800 resolution and 350 nit brightness 
  • Connectivity: micro USB, Bluetooth 4.0
  • Cameras: 5 MP rear and 1.6 MP front
  • Operating system: Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • Battery/Autonomy: 3,450 mAh; up to 8 hours over WiFi and 6 hours of HD video playback
  • Variants: WiFi and 3G

Lenovo will release the S5000 with 3G HSPA+ connectivity in select countries, but not in the United States. In Europe, pricing starts at $260 for the WiFi version, while the 3G will cost $325. The S5000 will reach the United States towards the end of the year, since the press release only mentions "Q4 2013".

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
